Prevent a given partition from mounting at boot
Authored by: tom larkin on Oct 11, '06 06:36:35AM

This is nothing new, /etc/fstab has been in unix/linux for a long time. There are many ways to configure drives too, you can also use the volume=volumename instead of UUIDs, though UUIDs is probably the most secure method.

Also, you have to create the /etc/fstab file, by default its not in OS X. You can sudo pico /etc/fstab in the terminal, then type in your settings then write out the file.
